Arrow .:My Summit White TF3 Edition Build Thread:.

My birthday was in March so i decided to get myself my first new/dream car. After selling a couple dirt bikes i had a good chunk of cash to put down on her, I chose to get the 1ls. I chose the base model so i can customize it how i wanted with the money i saved. I knew i wanted Summit White with the new transformers stripes way before i purchased my car. So i got hooked up with the new stripes and high wing spoiler when bought my car from the dealer.(Camino Real Chevy) I am extremely happy with how she turned out after only a year, please post up your thoughts on how she came out.

Exterior:
(MNP Customs) Rear Facia Blackout
(MNP Customs) Side Gills

(AAC) Afterburner Tail Lights
(Custom) ZL1 / Rideskinz Front Bumper Conversion
ZL1 Grill
Emblem Pros White/Black 1ls Grill Badge
Front and Back Bowties
GM High Wing Spoiler
GM Transformers 3 Stripes (Two Tone)
Tinted Windows
Blacked out License Plate and Sidemarkers

Interior
Footwell lighting

Performance
Injen Cai
Ported Throttle Body
Oil Catch Can

Wheels:
TSW Donnington (20s)

Exhaust:
ARK N-II Cat-Back

Oem stripes n high wing. Thanks all! Im goina throw some white n black rims on her for my 21st bday coming up soon. Also some halos n an ark exhaust. Not sure which one sounds best on the ls m6. stock I think the grip slant tip or n-II? my friend has a g35 n I love the sound it makes, I think I heard a grip exhaust that sounds really similar. Not sure wat exact one it was though

i also think i really gotta stay off freeways for long periods of time.. when im in 6th for some reason i just have to step on it and by the time i look at the speedometer im around 95!! it feels like im not going fast at all untill i zone out and see how fast im passing all these cars!! or maybe it could just be the music getting me pumped!! i told myself i would baby this car being its my first new car! i would hate for nething to happen to her. also that huge blind spot on the rite side of the car and wile reversing! i really dont think that its safe at all although i am used to it now. but im pretty sure sooner or later im going to reverse into something, esp with my high wing now i cant see nothing out my back window!
